Ingredients:

CUPCAKES

  • ½ cup (50g) cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (240 ml) boiling water
  • 1⅓ cups (175g) plain (all purpose) flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

FROSTING

  • 4 oz (120g) dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ⅔ cup (150g) unsalted butter
  • 1⅓ cups (160g) icing (confectioners’) sugar, sifted
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F. Lightly butter, or line 16 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl stir until smooth the boiling hot water and the cocoa powder. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Then in the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat only until incorporated. Then add the cooled cocoa mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds full with batter and bake for about 16 – 20 minutes or until risen, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. (Do not over bake or the cupcakes will be dry.) Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  6. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, it’s time to make the chocolate fudge frosting.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  8. In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute). Add the sugar and beat until it is light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the chocolate and beat on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until frosting is smooth and glossy (about 2 -3 minutes).
  9. Decorate cupcakes as desired.
